Hello all! We're Barking Dog Arts, a creative community at Lowe Mill in Huntsville Alabama which operates the hallway and theater formerly known as Flying Monkey Arts. We're holding the 15th Annual Cigar Box Guitar Festival this year, and we're determined to bring it back from the brink and make it a fun event focused on Cigar Box Guitar musicians and makers. Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns!

The vending application for this year's festival can be found here (edit: original link wasn't working)
The official announcement for this year's festival can be found here.
